This Lightweight Sports Car Is the Lovechild of Science and Legendary F1 Designer Gordon Murray


Gordon Murray Automotive, headed by the legendary designer who penned numerous Formula 1 cars as well as the record-smashing McLaren F1, has detailed the specs for its upcoming T.43 sports car.

The source code. The complete details.

The T.43 sports car is the first platform and product designed for license or sale by GMA which, thanks to a new licensing model developed by the company, allows for other automakers to build off its design. 

GMA stated the T.43 weighs 850 kilograms or 1,874 pounds, and it will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine with 220 horsepower, giving the vehicle a power to weight ratio of 259 horsepower per ton. The compact power unit will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission to send power to the ground. Dimension specifics claim that the rolling chassis will be 143.3 inches long, 68.9 inches long, and 48.8 inches tall with a wheelbase of 98.4 inches.
